Auryn Samples High-Grade Silver from Newly Discovered High Sulphidation System at Sombrero
VANCOUVER, CANADA / September 30, 2019 / Auryn Resources Inc. (TSX:AUG)(NYSE American:AUG) ("Auryn" or the "Company") is pleased to announce results of up to 981 g/t silver discovered through a rock sampling program within the southern portion of the Sombrero district in Southern Peru. This was the Company's first exploration program at the Ccello project, which is defined by a 2-kilometer-by-1.5-kilometer high sulphidation alteration system (Figures 1 & 2).
A first-pass reconnaissance consisting of mapping and sampling was conducted at Ccello to follow up on anomalous stream sediment samples. This yielded a previously unrecognized high sulphidation alteration system characterized by a large-scale clay alteration, quartz-alunite alteration, massive silica and zones of stockwork veining. Within the broader alteration system, silver mineralization is hosted within massive silica structures that are associated with quartz-alunite alteration along a 500-meter zone (Figures 3 & 4). Rock grab sample highlights include the following silver values: 981 g/t, 72.1 g/t, 64.4 g/t, 40.6 g/t, 26.6 g/t and 20.5 g/t.
